Summary "The book presents a common sense approach to interpreting and applying existing clinical knowledge and new research to help clinicians make sense of the complex phenomena of acute and chronic post-traumatic musculoskeletal pain. Built upon the Assess, Predict, Treat framework, the book offers a method to help clinicians better understand their patients pain, presents evidence-based decision tools to predict natural and clinical course of common conditions such as neck and low back pain, and then synthesizes that information into a logical integrated treatment approach that respects the individuality of the patient, the experiences of the clinician, and the value of evidence-informed practice. Written by two leaders in the field of post-traumatic pain and recovery, the book provides a valuable framework to facilitate novice clinicians in their transition towards experts, and helps mid- and late-stage clinicians better interpret, synthesize, and discuss complex information on pain with the goal of optimised outcomes for patients"--Publisher's description
